Been here for their annual festival on Khao Chae (rice soak in aromatic water), a traditional Thai exotic summer special dish. Although, there are a lot of restaurant offer the dish nowadays, but Mandarin Oriental always one of the best. Moreover, their Thai food also outstanding in its name. The quality of ingredients and the mild and authentic taste is... More

Prepare to be steeped in Thai ancient culture here. An extravaganza of ancient costumes, acting and dancing. Us Westerners will find the music tonality a little different to what we're used to but that's what this is all about. Seeing how other cultures live.The food is served in several courses each one authentic Thai cuisine. Beware, authentic means authentic and... More

We went to the Sala Rim Naam Thai dinner show with first time visitors to Bangkok and left disappointed and embarrassed by such a dreadful let down. The food was poorly prepared, used cheap ingredients and was a insult to the many fabulous flavours of Thai cuisine. Better food can be found on almost any street corner in Bangkok. The... More

Sala Rim Naam is one restaurant that my wife and I remembered fondly from Bangkok. We came for the Thai buffet lunch. We enjoyed the variety and delicacy of the Thai food prepared in the traditional way; the presentation was beautiful arranged. Food was delicious and service was attentive, with the friendly smiles. We also liked the space of the... More

Once again an outstanding display of high quality food and service. Impeccable service and a lovely view. Inside the restaurant a dance show, outside on the terrace a quiet setting. Every suggested dish is intriguing and very appetising. Four times in this great restaurant inside "my bangkok home", the Mandarin. Wine list could be better. Ad majora.

I was so looking forward to our trip to the Mandarin - Sala Rim Naam, but once seated it quickly became apparent that the so called dress code was not being enforced.
